LOS ANGELES—The nominees for the 81st annual Academy Awards were announced Thursday, with veteran actor Dennis Quaid receiving no nods in multiple categories. Quaid, star of The Rookie, Breaking Away, and three films this year, is a strong favorite to walk away without a Best Actor award during Hollywood's biggest night. This marks Quaid's second non-nomination since his 2006 performance in American Dreamz, for which he was also not tapped. Quaid has never won a Golden Globe either.
